Brunswick Stew- Instant Pot Style

This recipe was Garen’s request for me to make in the Instant Pot so it was the first recipe that required more than 3 ingredients. I was a little leery since I’d never had Brunswick Stew and didn’t even know what to expect. As I always do when cooking something I don’t have a go-toContinue reading “Brunswick Stew- Instant Pot Style”

Getting Started with My New Toy, the Instant Pot

On Friday I turned 35 and one of the awesome gifts I got was an Instant Pot.  Garen got it for me.  He also got me a new diamond bracelet so he’s officially the best husband EVER.  He knew that I’d never buy one of these myself.  Plus, he also knew that I’d never getContinue reading “Getting Started with My New Toy, the Instant Pot”

Photo Friday: I’m an Auntie

I actually don’t remember whether I’ve blogged about my new niece or not but she is an absolute doll. I got to see her again last weekend before the Odom family made their way back up North. She was baptized at my parents’ church over the weekend. Unfortunately, Kate had some disgusting bug causing herContinue reading “Photo Friday: I’m an Auntie”

Sweet Saturday: In the Kitchen

Today was a great day with the girls. They love to “pay kitten” (aka Play Kitchen). They’re very creative and I only had to retrieve one chewed up plastic French fry from Kate’s mouth. I call that a success. People often ask if they get along well. And I always answer with “Eh.” Their personalitiesContinue reading “Sweet Saturday: In the Kitchen”

Photo Friday: Sweet Holiday Memories with Sugar Cookies

A couple of weekends back, the kids helped me to make Christmas cookies. We had such a good time, even if my kitchen became a disaster zone and the control freak, perfectionist side of me struggled to let them decorate them however they wanted. Garen caught a few good photos of us in action. Yes,Continue reading “Photo Friday: Sweet Holiday Memories with Sugar Cookies”
